EAT: Better Bites
Our Better Bites worksheets features one simple, affordable, healthy idea that makes it easy to get more nutrition in every bite. This month’s edition will help you make the most of that extra morning time — Give Breakfast a Boost!
READ: Book Club
This is a book club your little foodie will love to join. Each monthly book suggestion makes food literacy a page-turner. Topics range from school gardens, to special family meals, to farmer’s market finds. To make the most of the healthy messages in each book, our partner Jumpstart provides reading tips and Whole Kids Foundation provides a suggested activity to reinforce the lesson. Crack the spine on this month’s book, Lola Plants a Garden, and dig into fun.
Each of the activity sheets from our wild partner, ScrapKins, sends your green thumb to the recycle bin for a craft that will inspire fun and environmental stewardship! This month’s worksheet is a perfect pair for our book club. The Page Peeker Bookmark will help mark your stories and inspire a story about your kids’ favorite veggie.
Whole Kids Foundation has an entire summer’s worth of free, downloadable activities. Visit Whole Kids Club monthly for a curated set of activities to keep your family learning until those school doors open again.
